What I'm working on...
My first knitted project!
I recently learned to knit, and made a swatch in garter stitch.
I ended up not having enough yarn to continue, so I switched to a bulky multi-colored yarn, and started to garter stitch a length of that.
The yarn ended up being too stiff for a scarf (and my needles too small), so I decided to re-use that yarn for a future project (probably a hat).
Then I learned how to purl, and followed the advice from Stitch 'n Bitch, and am making a ribbed scarf.
I love the yarn at Tuesday morning, but quantities are limited, so I chose three muted colors that I thought worked well together and am doing a simple stripe.
The effect is somewhat masculine, so I intend to finish with an edge stitch all around in burgundy, and embroider some flowers (also with the burgundy yarn) on the taupe.
The yarn is a wool/acrylic blend, so the scarf should be nice and warm.
I'm about to the half way point right now.
Then the pattern will reverse so it matches.
